Digital health is an emerging trend to improve various fields of research and healthcare using latest digital solutions. Therefore, digital health brings together subject-matter experts from individual fields of life sciences to collaboratively improve state-of-the-art healthcare services. The given session will share latest trends and challenges in digital health and therefore provides a forum for constructive exchange between individual subject-matter experts, e.g. researchers, clinicians, citizens.
The BMBF Medical Informatics Initiative is the latest, national-scale funding schema for university hospitals in Germany. Four national consortia consisting of university hospitals, research partners, and associated industry partners were selected in 2018 to build-up and contribute to Germany’s next-generation digital healthcare infrastructure. The given session will provide a detailed overview of the funding program, its strategic aims, first findings from consortia work, and a forum for mutual exchange for collaborations.
The Roundtable Discussion will focus on digital health in different healthcare systems - its role, implementation and how it will transform healthcare in the future.
- Comparison between different countries (status quo and future plans)
- How do different healthcare systems transform digital health?
- What are the strategies?
